Overview

Zamii070's Harassment Controversy refers to the online backlash against artist Zammi070[7][8] on Tumblr, who accused her depictions of characters from animated shows, most notably Steven Universe, of promoting race-lifting, transphobia and body shaming. In October 2015, Zamii revealed she had attempted suicide as a result of the online harassment she received.

Background

Leading up to her suicide attempt, Steven Universe fans on Tumblr accused Zamii070 for creating problematic depictions of the characters Rose Quartz and Fluttershy from Steven Universe and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, respectively and among other deviations, for perpetuating bigotry such as racism, transphobia and fatphobia (shown below). Zamii070 is also known for cosplaying, some of which was met with harsh criticisms as well.[9]

ose No I literally f----- cant deal with this how the LITERAL. F---. do you expect me to forgive somebody the second they do something wrong, sure I'd forgive them for something in 2008 if they've adequately addressed the situation and EARNED forgiveness but forgive people right after they did it and didn't even mistakes". THAT is toxic. You're standards are so low they gotta be half way to hell before you accept they're doing something wrong. Me not being a pushover for oppression makes ME toxic?? F--- that. apologize because people β€œmake #personal #crewniverse 27TH OCT 2015 11 NOTES octobre 27, 2015 1 085 notes If you support people drawing canonly fat characters as skinny or worse whitewashing PoC representation, you can unfollow me right now cause I don't need your s---.
